Cathay Pacific Cuts Fuel Consumption with RR Solution
Posted: 2015 Dec 17


Hong Kong based Cathay Pacific has signed a five-year agreement with Rolls Royce (RR) that will see the airline use RR’s new Efficiency Service Solution to reduce fuel consumption on its aircraft fleet. The flight data belonging to 189 aircraft operated by Cathay and its fully owned subsidiary Dragonair, will be analysed by RR using its fuel management tool, VisiumFUEL. The cost of fuel alone accounts for 35-40 percent of an airlines operating cost.

The new service will add to the airlines existing TotalCare long-term service agreements with RR. The VisiumFUEL tool uses sophisticated visualisation and advanced analytics to deliver operational efficiency improvements at the fleet, route and individual flight stage. Mark Hoey, Cathay Pacific, General Manager Operations, said: “We are very pleased to reinforce our partnership with Rolls-Royce through this new fuel agreement. We are looking forward to the benefits of using Rolls-Royce’s expert consultancy and software to further optimise our growing operations.”
